Emma Freud, the wife of The Vicar Of Dibley’s creator, Richard Curtis, paid tribute to Chambers on Twitter.
She wrote: “Our beautiful friend Emma Chambers has died at the age of 53.
“We’re very very sad. She was a great, great comedy performer, and a truly fine actress. And a tender, sweet, funny, unusual, loving human being.”
